 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
    2      pounds        Ground round beef
    1      pound         Ground pork
    5      cups          Chopped onions
    1 1/2  tablespoons   Chopped garlic
    7      tablespoons   Chili powder
    2      cans          Chopped green chili peppers
    3      cans          (16 oz) crushed tomatoes
    3      tablespoons   Tomato paste
    4                    Bay leaves -- crumbled
    1      tablespoon    Salt
    1      tablespoon    Oregano
    1      tablespoon    Red wine vinegar
    1      tablespoon    Grown sugar
    2      cans          16 oz) red kidney beans
    1      package       Corn chips
    1                    Head lettuce -- shredded
   12      ounces        Sharp cheddar cheese -- shredd
 
 In a large, heavy pot, brown the meat with the onions and the garlic. Drain off
the fat and stir in the chili powder (depending on quality, you may want more ~
we get real cool stuff up here in the north). Add chilies, tomatoes, tomato
paste, bay leaves, salt, oregano, vinegar, and brown sugar.
 Cover the pot and cook for 2 hours over low heat.
 Add beans and cook, uncovered, 30 minutes more.
 Serve with side dishes of corn chips, shredded lettuce, and shredded Cheddar
cheese.
